My fiance and I wish to acquire a 3 bedroom flat in Ulceby with a loan from National Westminster Bank.We like our Ulceby conveyancing practitioner but National Westminster Bank says his firm is not listed on their "panel". we are left little option but to use a National Westminster Bank panel firm or retain our preferred solicitor and pay for one of their panel ones to act for them. We feel as though this is unjust; is there anything we can do?

Unfortunately,no. The loan issued to you contains various provisions, one of which will be that solicitors needs to be on the National Westminster Bank approved list. Until recently, most mortgage companies had large numbers of solicitors on their panels: a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. Another option that might be available is for your lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for National Westminster Bank

Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £245,000 and identified one near me in Ulceby I like with a park and railway links nearby, the downside is that it only has 51 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Ulceby in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?

Should you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be problematic. Reduce the price by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you may ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this.

In what way can the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 impact my commercial premises in Ulceby and how can you help?

The 1954 Act gives protection to business tenants, granting the legal entitlement to apply to court for a continuation of occupancy at the end of the lease term. There are limited grounds where a landlord can refrain from granting a lease renewal and the rules are involved. Fees are different for commercial conveyancing.

We're new to the buying process - had an offer accepted, yet the estate agent advised that the vendor will only move forward if we appoint the agent's recommended lawyers as they want a ‘quick sale’. My instinct tells me that we should use a local conveyancer with experience of conveyancing in Ulceby

We suspect that the seller is unaware of this request. Should the seller desire ‘a quick sale', alienating a motivated purchaser is is going to put the whole deal at risk. Contact the vendors directly and explain that (a)you are genuine purchasers (b)you are excited to move forward, with mortgage lined up © you have nothing to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you will continue to use your own,trusted Ulceby conveyancing firm - not the ones that will give the negotiator at the agency a introducer fee or hit his conveyancing targets pre-set by HQ.

Last October I purchased a leasehold property in Ulceby. Am I liable to pay service charges for periods before my ownership?

Where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous owner and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. Strange as it may seem, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. A critical element of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to ensure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.

If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).
